HUSTLERS CONVENTION

Released in 1973, the album Hustlers Convention changed the face of music.

It is regarded as a cornerstone in the evolution of Hip Hop and its creator is affectionately known in some circles as ‘The Grandfather of Rap’ for his contribution to the genre.

However the album’s story, and the story of its creator, has been a missing piece of cultural history… until now.

Catch: the hold not taken

Celebrating the art of Lancashire ‘Catch-as-catch-can’ wrestling and its amateur and professional development, the film contrasts the billion dollar phenomenon of professional wrestling with its humble roots.

“Catch: the hold not taken” traces the origins of the sport in Lancashire and focuses in particular on Billy Riley’s ‘Snake Pit’ in Wigan.
